MX890 Brakes
The 890 pre-dates the MX-1000 and along with Shimano was the brake of choice before the "1000" came out. Perfect for all 80's restorations especially those bikes dating from 1982 and before (Diamond Back Silver Streak, Torker 280, etc) these were still used into the mid-80's as an alternative to the MX1000.


These new versions from Dia-Compe actually look nicer in our opinion than the new MX1000 and they come in Black, Red, Blue, Gold Silver or White. Match them up with a Tech-II or Tech-III lever and you have great looking brake set that only the cognoscenti will know aren't the originals.

• For a Pro set up why not add some Kool Stop Pads from us for these brakes.
